Mentos + Diet Cola = Awesome Family Night

This summer we are focusing on doing some fun family activities.  Our kids are getting bored of summer and we can't just go to the park or the swimming pool because they are 45 minutes away.  We have a certain activities for the different days of the week.  One of the day is science experiments.  I'm sure you've seen this, but if you haven't you HAVE TO!!  It's so awesome.

You just take some diet cola (has to be diet not zero) and add some mentos to it (fruit or mint flavored) and then sit back and watch the fun.

Here are a couple vidoes of it.  We were mean parents and made my daughter go first.  It was hilarious to watch :).  The boys had a blast with the last one. Even the chickens joined in on the fun.
      
I would love it if you followed along.
